2 oz./56g $35.00
Collagen is one of the building block proteins of the skin (elastin being the other one). As we age, collagen becomes depleted and our skin starts to gain fine lines and wrinkles. Collagen can be produced in the skin again, whereas elastin cannot. A collagen molecule is not small enough to move past the epidermal skin barrier, but it can make a difference in how the skin looks when used in a moisturizer. At least temporarily, It is therefore a good idea to incorporate one into your regimen. 

One moisturizer that I particularly like is the DERMA E Advanced Peptides & Collagen Moisturizer. It not only contains collagen but peptides, which are amino acid chains that work to help produce collagen in the skin. This moisturizer, formerly known as Deep Wrinkle Moisturizer, is a revolutionary double-action peptide cream to visibly soften and smooth the appearance of even the deepest wrinkles. A new and improved formula restores a more youthful appearance to skin by diminishing the look of lines and wrinkles. It contains a highly advanced formulation packed with peptides and collagen needed for healthy-looking skin that makes one of the best moisturizers for wrinkles. DERMA E uses the Matrixyl®synthe’6® and Argireline®, as well as Pycnogenol®, an amazing antioxidant that is thought to support healthy collagen. This also contains Vitamin C and Green Tea for extra anti-aging antioxidants. Advanced Peptides & Collagen Moisturizer intensely hydrates whiles creating a renewed and radiant complexion. The key benefits to this moisturizer are the following: 
  • it visibly softens and smooths skin fine lines and wrinkles.
  • it hydrates skin so it looks plump and feels supple
  • it improves the appearance of the skin's tone and texture 
The ingredients in this moisturizer are what separate it from other collagen and peptide based moisturizers. It has a bevy of wonderful ones. Matrixyl® synthe’6® is a potent multi-peptide thought to support healthy collagen that can boost the luminosity of the skin's tone and texture. Argireline®NP is a peptide that can help smooth out the appearance of fine lines on the skin's surface. Pycnogenol® is an antioxidant that helps to reduce the appearance of lines, wrinkles, and other issues associated with aging skin. Plus, it soothes and reduces the appearance of redness. Panthenol, or ProVitamin B5, is a water soluble vitamin that acts like a humectant, drawing moisture to the skin while conditioning the complexion for a smooth, vibrant, looking complexion. Plant-derived collagen helps to create a more youthful appearance and provides moisturizing appearance. Vitamin E nourishes the skin with much needed hydration for superior moisturizing power. Vitamin A is the 'skin vitamin' that promotes cell renewal and exfoliation. It also helps to reduce the appearance of the common signs of aging, such as fine lines and wrinkles. A stable form of Vitamin C, Vitamin C Ester, helps to brighten skin, diminish the such as fine lines and wrinkles, and other signs of photo aging. Green Tea is a powerful antioxidant that helps to reduce the visible signs of aging. Jojoba Seed Oil moisturizes and help reduces visible signs of aging such as dryness while easing flakiness. It also eases redness and calms the skin. This moisturizer is 100% vegan and cruelty-free and doesn't contain any parabens, sulfates, mineral oil, lanolin, gluten or GMO's. 

To use: thoroughly cleanse face and neck before using Advanced Peptides and Collagen Moisturizer. Apply a rich layer of the moisturizer to the skin, gently massaging in until the cream is absorbed. Use in the morning and the evening to give  skin a smooth, plumped and lifted appearance. The moisturizer is effective on its own, or it can be paired with your favorite DERMA E serum. Enhance the benefits by using the moisturizer along with the Advanced Peptides and Collagen Eye Cream. Make sure to use this under a SPF30 if using in the morning. 

I found this cream to be very rich and effective at helping to control my signs of aging (temporarily). Again, because collagen is a large molecule, it cannot pass through the epidermis, thus it will not get to the actual dermis, and therefore cause significant change to the skin. It does however, help the skin look better when you use it, skin looks and feels better, Which is good and exactly what you want to hear. How does skin look and feel better you ask? Fine lines and wrinkles are decreased, skin tone is lightened and skin looks plump and hydrated. It does exactly what it says it is going to do. What more can you ask?

This is recommended for skin that is dry, mature, combination, and normal. Although it is ideally recommended for all skin types, the moisturizer is very rich and would likely not work out well for those with oily and acneic skin types. I would especially recommend it for those with mature and dry skin types. One of the ingredients in it is glycerin, which is the second ingredient on the list. The reason I Iike this ingredient so much is because it helps to hydrate the skin so well, It is a fabulous humectant. And it reaches all the way down to the dermis. This cream has a strong lavender scent to it though, so be wary is you are looking at something lightly scented. 

DERMA E Advanced Peptides & Collagen Moisturizer retails for $35.00.
